Hi the minimum flame on my cooktop is too high - I need to adjust this - the instructions suggest there is a screw within or at the side of the shaft beneath the control knobs - this is not true - model is PGFA95FX. Thanks Alan

Don't know the brand from that#, but Adj screw is typically inside the shaft. Need a long very thin screwdriver to get to it. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

Want to adjust the knob to make the flame smaller than @ current setting??


pull of the knob
put a smill flashlight down the selector shaft
you should see a small adjustment screw
probably a tiny flat head
very small turns
start from the lowest setting if you start from the highest you could loose your low flame below the grid
always adjust fromt the lower settings

some of these units are factory set and cannot be adjusted by the consumer,,,,unless you want to install new adjustable gas valvews

Converted a ge gas to lp. the oven and broiler has too much flame


You must close the gas valve orifice. There is a gas valve (silver or grey colored rectangular shaped piece which feeds the burner(s)) that has a brass or gold-colored hex nut. This nut (1/2 inch) needs to be tighten down clockwise to the stop point. This will regulate the flame.

Pilot Flame is too high.


You will only need to purge air from the supply if this is newly installed or if you have recently disconnected / reconnected the main gas supply for some reason. Otherwise, you can just skip that step.

If you do need to purge the system do the following:

MAKE SURE THE ROOM IS WELL VENTED TO OUTSIDE

REMOVE ALL SOURCES OF POSSIBLE IGNITION

Fully open the largest burner and allow to run until gas is smelt.

There is no way to say exactly how long it needs to be open as this very much depends on the length of pipework feeding the appliance, but in a typical domestic installation, this shouldn't be more than about 5-10 seconds.

Hope this helps,

Matt

Low flame from gas cooktop


you can adjust the flames as follows pull a knob and look in the end of the brass peice you will see a small screw first you have to find a screw driver that will fit then with a pair of pliers hold the outer peice with the burner on and turn the screw one way rasies other lowers ideal adj is to turn buner all the way up then fast down if flame goes out to low keep working like that till flame is low but doesnt go out

Burners only work half way


Remove the burner knobs, inside of each shaft is a straight slot screw adjustment, use a flshlight to see it. Sears has screwdrivers this small.While holding the shaft with a pair of pliers turn the screw in the shaft, it will be hard to turn, this is normal.
Continue doing this until you obtain the desired flame setting.
